I went out for a run yesterday evening planning to do 8 miles, after 2 and a half miles I had to stop because my left calf was feeling stiff, after walking for a few minutes I tried to run again but I couldnt run at all as every time i tried to push off on that leg my calf muscle was cramping. It is now feeling extrememly tight, and on occasions sore, I am now limping a little.
I am supposed to be running the Bristol half marathin next week but not sure what to do. Does anyone have any advice on what to do to recover as soon as possible and whether or not it is still a good idea to race?
Thanks in advance!
